Nice 99 Spotted!

Well, as I may have mentioned before, I live in a town where 10% of people are employed by Delphi or are UAW workers... so most people locally drive GM or an otherwise very Amreican car. There are not many foreign cars around, and even though this is a fairly medium sized city, I can go 3 or 4 days and see zero Saabs. Which is why this surprised me so much.

My friend said his neighbors had some kind of a classic Saab, but he wasn't sure what it was. I sent him some pictures, and the one of the 99 looked right to him, so I finally took a ride to his place to see what the car was.

It's out in a small agricultural community - very sparsely populated, and houses every half mile or so on the road (mainly farmland).

It's a 99 GL. It's very nice. One of the fenders has some rust, but they have some kind of protectant on it to stop it? Anyway, the plate on the back even says "saab 99" and he's never seen them drive it besides one time, when he saw it broken down on the road. I'm going to go back and take pictures, and as well give them my telephone number for if they ever decide to sell it. Other than a little rust on the underbody that was kind of visible, the car looked pretty nice.
